Education

I graduated from Lanett High School, and then attended Troy State University-Montgomery and Alabama State University, which culminated in earning a Bachelor's Degree- Cum Laude- in Elementary Education in December 2002. I later attended Grand Canyon University and earned a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instructional Technology in 2010. As of May 2004 I achieved Highly Qualified Status. I completed my TEAM MATH training in June 2009. My AMSTI training was completed in May 2011.



Experience

I have worked as secretary of Lanett High School, Tallassee High School, and Wetumpka High School. After earning my teaching degrees, I taught third grade at Robinson Springs School for 5 years. I then transferred to first grade at Coosada Elementary School and worked there for 9 years. This is my third year teaching second grade at Eclectic Elementary School and I absolutely love it here! I look forward to many more amazing years at Eclectic Elementary School.



Bio

My name is Donna Nelson and I am privileged to teach 2nd grade at Eclectic Elementary School. I graduated from Lanett High School, and then received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Alabama State University. I earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instructional Technology from Grand Canyon University. Before becoming an elementary school teacher, I worked as secretary at Lanett High School, Tallassee High School, and Wetumpka High School. This is my 16th year in the classroom. I taught third grade at Robinson Springs School for 5 years. I also taught first grade at Coosada Elementary School for 9 years. This is my third year teaching second grade at Eclectic Elementary School and I absolutely love it here. I have been married to my high school sweetheart , Steve, for 43 years. We have 2 beautiful daughters, April and Tanya! We also have 5 amazing grandchildren, Austin, Barrett, Caleigh, Jeni, and Brooklyn; all of whom have or are currently attending Eclectic schools. In addition to my family, I also have a cat and dog. I enjoy cooking making crafts and spending time with my family...especially with my grandchildren. I am a firm believer in faith and family, and in open communication between parents/guardians and the teacher. I look forward to teaching your child, and know we will have a year filled with learning and adventure!
